Come Friday, U2 will begin its 30th-anniversary tour for The Joshua Tree in Vancouver. As part of whatever they plan to do (and other than playing the album front-to-back, nothing much has been revealed), they’ve licensed some of the work of George Elliott Clarke, our Canadian parliamentary poet laureate.
Apparently, some of the visuals developed for the tour include Clarke’s “Ain’t You Scared of the Sacred?: A Spiritual” and “Elegy for Leonard Cohen. Word is that the poems will be projected on screens prior to the start of the show.
